Rotary Shines a Light On Youth Services!
Current District News . . .
Posted by Bill Donberg
As Rotarians, we have the unique opportunity and ability to significantly impact the lives of those less fortunate. For the past 10 years, I have realized that opportunity by working with Pure Water for the World (PWW) and many District 6290 Clubs in efforts to provide safe water and sanitation to underserved communities in Haiti. While it can be difficult to explain the profound impact that we as Rotarians can exert, I have seen, firsthand, the lifesaving capabilities that safe water possesses, as it brings children struggling with debilitating and sometimes life threatening waterborne illnesses back to good health.
With the Rotary year just past the halfway point, I would like to present two well- defined water/ hygiene projects that would certainly benefit from any residual funds that your club or individuals may want to consider supporting.
